Interesting that the costume designer is Odile Dicks-Mireaux. She's really good. Her first credited work was on Doctor Who in the 1980s, a show that has spawned its share of Oscar-winners.

A nice little piece here. Diana, Patrick, Honor, Linda and Brian Clemens all contribute some thoughts.

Diana Rigg remembered: ‘Ma didn’t suffer fools: she exploded them at 50 paces’
Rachael Stirling recalls her mother’s last months – and remembers her enormous sense of fun, whether pulling pranks on stage or dancing until dawn on her 80th birthday

Diana's final role is in this psychological horror that is released today in the UK and the US. Having watched some of the trailers this looks to be an interesting movie. It's set in the 1960's and other stars who emerged during this era, including Terence Stamp and Rita Tushingham, also have featured roles.

I've heard only good things about it. Edgar Wright's the director isn't he? He's really good. Sounds like a lot of fun.

And this weekend I'm probably going to be watching The Assassination Bureau on DVD!

"I'm ghost-curious"

Interview with the director. Some nice insight into the real 1960s. As philosopher George Santayana said, "History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren't there." I was there.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/27/movies/edgar-wright-last-night-in-soho.html

"As Wright recalled, “My dad would say, ‘Oh, we saw Jimi Hendrix live.’ And my mom would say, ‘We didn’t see Jimi Hendrix, we saw Pink Floyd.’ And I would say, ‘Oh my God, what were Pink Floyd like?’ And my mom would go, ‘They were awful.’”"

Of course the real story is that Jimi Hendrix was watching Pink Floyd in the Blarney Club basement:)

Yes definitely. Barrett had some important people interested in his live performances. David Bowie was definitely keen on him. Also Marc Bolan of T-Rex (not quite as important as Hendrix or Bowie!).

loved the Early Floyd..as they were on Harvest label in the states...I think my favorite Barrett song is ' Arnold Layne'....I still crack up hearing the final line.
' Arnold Layne,don't do it again'.....

always felt the band lost something when he left the group...and descended into madness...

Yes, Harvest was the label EMI created for its more progressive/avante-garde acts and the Floyd was one of their leading lights. I got their vinyl called "Picnic - a Breath of Fresh Air" with samples of all the Harvest acts on, amusingly (given the title) it had a family on the beach wearing gas masks and loads of dead birds (this following the Beatles' famous "doll butchery" banned cover). This record too got banned but for a different reason, the Floyd objected to their "Embryo" track being released when it was not ready, they hadn't done all the overdubs yet. I've heard the track performed live on a John Peel radio show and it was magnificent in its finished form - about 25 minutes long with amazing solos and harmonies, so am not surprised they were pissed off.

So I'm glad to have found this extremely rare record, but the live version will always be definitive for me.

I only realised the other day I've been confusing Siân Phillips and Sheila Hancock for years.

In the 60s and 70s they were indistinguishable. I thought it was Sheila too when I saw the photos.
